How is your heart?

Ever since this prayer group has started, and I've started writing again, I've been getting sporadic messages from folks about their prayer life. It has been great to talk to people about prayer and strengthening their relationship with God. The one thing I've started asking people is how their heart is. While I'm a big fan of prayer, it's never enough to just carve out time in the day to pray without knowing what you're feeling in your heart.

Passages: St. Augustine

Over the past 8 months, I've reflected quite a bit on my relationship with God, why I walked away from my faith 18 years ago, and why every day I tried to push the call to a priestly vocation to the back of my head. One of the answers that continues to present itself is that I wasn't willing to let God into my heart entirely and love Him unconditionally.
